Behind the Green Door: The Experts Interviews Part II

The Oslo Architecture Triennale opened to the public last week, under the title “Behind the Green Door – Architecture and the desire for sustainability”. Rotor, the curators of the Triennale, collected over 600 objects carrying claims of sustainability from over 200 architecture offices, companies and environmental organizations across the world (read our interview with Rotor about the curation).

Experts from different fields share with us which the objects from the collection caught their attention and why. In this second and final part, Nanne de Ru (Powerhouse Company, Director of the Berlage Institute), Arild Eriksen and Joakim Skajaa (Eriksen Skajaa), Andres Lepik (Director of the Münich Architecture Museum), Nanna Bjerre Hjortenberg (The Danish Architecture Center), Willem Bruijn (Partner, Baumschlager Eberle) and Gilles Perraudin (Perraudin Architectes) tell us their what they think. From co-housing utopias, to a hospital that tries to stand over time due to its design and more.

The Triennale is open until December 1st, full programme here. Check the rest of the videos below:
